Work Shifting involves more than geographic location. It involves location, time, equipment, intellectual activation (mental readiness) and even social presence. Essentially, our present technology allows the worker to work when it is optimal. We are entering an age where not only time or location but especially computing device is flexible.
Today I am completing the conversion of our file server to CentOS because the disk drives needed to be upgraded. They have been in service for about two (2) years and are now completely full. I ordered two 1.5 TB Seagates and installed CentOS 5.2xx, then transferred all the user login information for Linux and Samba (Windows file sharing) to the new system.
